FL School District Gives Anti-Gay Boy Scouts The Boot

The Pinellas County School Board in Tampa Bay, Florida voted to deny a $54,000 grant to a Boy Scouts of America-affiliated educational program called “Learning for Life” because the BSA discriminates against gay youth.” The grant denial effectively kills the program, which served Pinellas County elementary and middle schools. Instead they will expand the district’s “Commitment to Character” program which is presumably less hatey.

The BSA’s “Learning for Life” was a character education program that allegedly taught students values like honesty, fairness, respect, and responsibility; pretty strange coming from a group that once kicked out a lesbian den mother and refused to protect a kid from being used as a fuck toy by one of his (presumably straight) scout leader.
